We would all more than likely envision a pretty low key gathering to celebrate such a huge milestone. I doubt however, any of us see ourselves living it up in New Orleans while we ring in our entrance to the century club, but that’s just what NADA is doing.

Have you been car shopping lately? If you have, then you can see there is huge difference in pricing for the same year, make and models.
